    Particulates in Fermenter

    Hello Fellow Brewers! As a starter, I'm still fairly new to the brewing ins and outs as this is something I've picked up during quarantine. My buddy and I have brewed about 70 gallons+ of beer since late July, with many successes! On our most recent batch, I've noticed some particulates in the...

    Whirlflic and late addition LME

    Hi all, I brew only extract beers. I've been wanting to withold extract and add it late to reduce darkening the wort. I also want to use Whirlfloc to help clear it. My question is two parts, really: I'm reading that "late" for a late addition is like 45 minutes into the boil. Is that right...

    Odd yeast flocculation

    I have a patersbier in the fermenter currently and it seems healthy but it looks odd enough that I am curious. The yeast dancing around has started to clump but it still circulating.

However, I have noted that while Irish Moss...

    Adding pectin enzyme to a perry?

    getting ready to make a pear cider/perry. I’m using organic pasteurized pear juice, and plan to add some brown sugar and cane sugar for a caramelized type flavor and to bump the OG a bit(I’m aiming for a high-ABV cider, something in the 10% range so it’ll have to be around 1.100 roughly). I will...

    Low Carbonation

    Hello guys, I was wondering if whirfloc addition could decrease yeast effectivity. Since I started using them I noticed that my beer is getting out kind of flat. Not sure if this could be due the whirfloc or any other factor when bottling the beer. I would appreciate if any of you guys have...
